Knock You On Your Ass Margaritas

If this was Hogwarts, I would fail every class…except for bartending. I think Professor Flitwick teaches it.

Oh, and I’d probably pass herbology. Ahem.

My point is, I am mediocre at most things except eating and booze, and since yesterday I showed you a picture of my Margarita Ball, I thought I’d spend today telling you just what to put into it.

You know those margaritas that are so good, you sit there and drink them for hours, having no concept how drunk you are until you try to stand upright and then you hit the pavement face first? This is one of those margaritas. It’s a family recipe perfected over the years by generations and generations of drunk Catholic people, and today I will share it with you.

Knock You On Your Ass Margaritas

6 oz Roses Lime Juice (This is not the same as regular lime juice.)
8 oz Triple Sec
1 liter Tequila
1 container Frozen Lemonade, melted
36 oz Water

Mix all of the above together, then chill in the fridge.

For best results, let it sit at least an hour.

*When using this recipe for my Margarita Ball, I double it.

That … looks deliciously dangerous.

I also recently wrote about Harry Potter. Sort of. It involves pee.

Where does one get a margarita ball? Nothing on amazon so far! (pout)

They have some on Ebay… looks to be about $20 or so.

We’re having my sons 5th birthday party this Saturday and I have been looking for an adult beverage to make. So, thank you!! Can’t wait to make it (and drink it). =) Do you think I should double it? Should be around 40-50 people?


Brittany May 8, 2012 at 9:56 am

Yes, definitely double it!


Gabriella May 8, 2012 at 10:07 am

Awesome!! The generations and generations of (cuban) drunk Catholic people in my family thank you!


Becky May 8, 2012 at 10:06 am

Damn!! Making this this weekend… and it’s Mother’s Day. Mommy’s going to have a good time~

It’s Potions. But only after Slughorn took over. Snape never let anyone have any fun.

HAHA! You have my sister’s secret ingredient to How to Have a Successful Yard Sale!
Pull table out to front yard. Toss all the crap you wish to get rid of onto table. Fill very large thermos with Margaritas. Sit in lawn chair and get trashed while selling stuff until you’ve either lowered the prices because you’re feeling drunk-generous or given it all away to the first person who comments on how nice you look. At the end of the yard sale, she’s feeling no pain, has gotten rid of most of the stuff that had been cluttering the hall closet AND has enough money to buy a new bottle of Tequila.

Holy ever loving crap. This is amazing. This recipe needs to make an appearance in my life soon.

Today I bought a Margarita ball from ebay. Counting down the days until its arrival! I am predicting many wasted nights this summer!

After a long week (and its only wednesday!) involving shitty boys – my bestie and I are headed down to a ranch in Waco this weekend to watch chick flicks and get drunk… I think we’ll DEFINITELY be making these margs!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! Your timing is impeccable!! :)

Funny that we Catholics know how to make an amazing Margarita – this recipe is almost exactly like my family recipe except we add a can of beer!


Kristen May 11, 2012 at 9:47 pm

All of a sudden I’m pregnant and CRAVING MARGARITAS. This is not fair. Because these look amazeballs.


Peggy May 12, 2012 at 12:36 am

This is going to cause a run on margarita balls on eBay…. Mine is on the way! Thanks – can’t wait to try the recipe :) Have you made it with frozen limeade melted?


Victoria May 13, 2012 at 11:07 pm

Oh. Em. Gee. My bestie and I went on a little road trip down to Waco (I know, so creepy right?? All I can think about is David Koresh and Haley Bop… or something, anyways…) with this recipe in hand. When we got there, we found the most amazing white trash plastic wine glasses with, get this, SPILL PROFF LIDS AND STRAWS!!! This is so good, right? So, we made your margaritas, drank them in the white trash glasses and got drunk off our asses while sitting on the porch at an incredible ranch, watching the cows and horses and grass and… whatnot. LOVELY. THANK YOU!!!


Victoria May 13, 2012 at 11:08 pm

(turns out I already posted about this before it happened… see, those margaritas were so good that I’m way too hungover to think straight!)

I have to disagree with this recipe. Thats more of a recipe for a hangover than a cocktail. I subscribe to the NEVER used bottled lime or lemon juices and that limeade does not belong in a margarita. I use nothing but 100% Agave tequila, FRESH squeeze lime juice, agave nectar, water and ice. Gran Marinier, Cointreau or Controy on occasion or a splash of Presidente Brandy on top but thats it. That is the freshest, cleanest, most natural tasting margarita you will find. If I want to make a large batch or a batch of frozen I make my own mix using:

12 oz fresh squeeze lime juice
9 oz agave nextar
10 oz water

Then all you do is add tequila & ice and you are good to go.

Perfect! I’m hosting Bunko this week and it’s the hostess’s job to provide the booze. Thank you!!

You had me at Hogwarts!

Will have to try when I get home from Denver!
